Medicare’s enrollment period, known as the Annual Election Period (AEP), starts on October 15 and lasts through December 7. (We go into more detail about this in a previous blog post.) As you are preparing for Medicare by reviewing your Medicare plan options, the ApexHealth team wants you to know that ApexAssistants are here to help. Let’s dive into the many ways they can assist with enrollment.
